How long did it take, Hank Arron to break Babe Ruth’s record, he almost didn’t make it. So, when suddenly, everyone ,is doing it, does it fail to raise suspicion? No, it does not! It launches, an investigation, into illegal doping, and sure enough they all get caught, lie about it, and go right on back to baseball, without the drugs now, presumably, however, with having almost broken Hank Arron’s record, in half his lifetime.
These, people cannot have these records, it is not fair, to Babe Ruth and Hank Arron, who succeeded without drugs.
When, Barry Bonds, and the others, attmept to claim the award, hang them!

I don’t think people really know how far back this steroid thing goes? Nor do people really want to believe Lance Armstrong used them. Shame on you!
Shame on you for wanting to place a selected group of people in this category. Lance used steroids! He only had more supporters and people who wanted to believe he didn’t.
The government doped Jesse Owens. He was an animal (African American) to the American government. He was a guinea pig, like millions of other African Americans.
Unfortunately, many athletes today volunteer to be guinea pigs for financial and personal gain; Jesse didn’t have much of a choice in the matter.
